TUXEDO, NY — April 15, 2019 — New York 18 Congressional District candidate Chele Farley announced today that her campaign has raised over $200,000 in the first week.
“I am very pleased with the response I have received on my Congressional campaign. It is clear that voters are concerned with Sean Patrick Maloney’s embrace of socialist policies like the Green New Deal,” said Farley. “People have strongly responded by pledging over $200,000 to the campaign in the first week.” This total does not include any donations or loans from the candidate.
This fundraising pace is a record for the district and a clear indication that this race will be competitive in 2020. The NRCC named NY-18 one of its targeted districts in 2020, as President Trump won the district in 2016. As a US Senate candidate in 2018, Chele Chiavacci Farley raised $1.4 million in 9 months, and proved she can raise the money needed to win the district in 2020.
